Life has been busy these days. A holiday like Memorial Day always alters the flow of life. But how wonderful to have time with family! Dad and Alma came to visit for four or five days. They were busy visiting not only our family, but a plethora of friends in the area. What fun they had visiting with friends from days gone by. And what fun we had visiting with them!
Sis and her family were here too. We saw nephew Matthew off at the airport. He's in Montana now, selling books with a team of twenty students from his college. They are working to earn tuition money and then will be heading back to Arkansas in August for the start of the school year. Matthew was excited about his summer plans, even though they involve sleeping on church and gym floors with a camping mat and sleeping bag.
Some of my spring flowers finally decided to bloom. And a few of the weeds decided to grow as well! I've really been enjoying the dianthus which seemed to weather our cold winter quite well and grew well this spring, even when other flowers were reluctant to show their faces.
Dad and Alma brought their "turtle house" with them on the back of their pick-up. It was so cozy and comfy. It was fun visiting them in their cozy nest, although most of our visiting happened in the house or around a campfire.
Family times are special times!
